Barrichello won Formula One

Rubens Barrichello won the inaugural Chinese Grand Prix today to clinch second place in Formula One while Ferrari teammate Michael Schumacher had a rare rough race -- spinning out and finishing 12th, more than a lap behind.

Barrichello completed the 56 laps on the new 3.388-mile &to=http://' target=_blank>Shanghai International Circuit one second ahead of Jenson Button of BAR-Honda. Kimi Raikkonen of McLaren-Mercedes was third, almost catching Button at the end.

"It's been a season I was playing catch-up to Michael," Barrichello said. "Now I am going through a good phase.", wrote Indianapolis Star.

The Brazilian started from the pole and led virtually the entire way in a race before a crowd of about 200,000. The event was seen as a marketing bonanza in this country of 1.3 billion people.
